The Writing and Society Research Centre are delighted to be partnering with the Sydney Review of Books and the Gender UNLIMITED* team at Western Sydney University to host a public webinar to explore the role of writing in generating new knowledge and understandings around gender.
This event aims to bring together Humanities and Arts practitioners into national conversations over advancing gender equity in the Higher Education sector. By focussing on the literary arts sector and creative praxis, Writing Gender will ask and explore how creative writing can generate new knowledge and understandings around gender, as well how writing can reshape public discourse about gender and culture, especially in its capacity to explore cultural testimony, embodied experience, alternative histories, and future worlds.
In collaboration with the Sydney Review of Books, guest speakers will publish their reflections on writing and gender in the week leading up to the webinar.
